Stored Grains - Insect Control Recommendations for 2017
All the expense and effort of making a crop can be wasted if not enough attention is paid to storage. The key to storing grains and other commodities on the farm is to make storage conditions unfavorable for the survival of stored-grain insects and molds. The following steps are designed to reduce the initial number of insects in the bin, slow the development of any remaining insects, and apply corrective measures to reduce insect populations if necessary. Following these steps will also greatly reduce stored-grain molds and associated mycotoxins.
